Jimmy D’s Early Years Provision Playgroup first opened in September 2001 and is based within Deeping St James Community Primary School.  Although Jimmy D’s is independent we work closely with the Early Years team within the school.

Jimmy D's Playgroup is registered for children aged between 2.5 to age 5 for the commencement of their Primary Education.

Our main room is a classroom within the school’s Early Years Unit and we have a fully enclosed outside play area, as well as a canopy, with a large selection of outdoor play equipment, which all children have access to all year round.  In addition once a week we have a P.E. session with Roar Stars Sports Club in the school hall with a trained coach, which all our children enjoy.

We pride ourselves on providing a safe, caring environment in which our children learn through play.  Planning for learning follows the National Curriculum, EYFS. Working to support children at each stage of their development, we aim to equip all children with physical, emotional and social skills ready for starting school.

We offer Early Years Entitlement funding through Lincolnshire County Council. Children are eligible from 3 years old allowing them 15-30 hours free, funded childcare a week depending on family circumstances. We also offer 2 year olds places for eligible funded children.

Our fees include Early Years Provision, healthy snacks during both morning and afternoon sessions with either milk or water plus supervised lunchtimes.

Please contact us for further information and if you wish to book a place for your child.  We welcome parents and children to come and take a look around our playgroup and meet our staff, to arrange a time please contact us.

*(there is an additional charge of £3.00 for lunchtime supervision, if required.  This is for parents who would like to extend their child’s morning session by one hour, so that they can stay for lunch if their funded hours have already been used up.  This charge also applies to non-funded children whose parents would like to extend their child’s morning session by one hour and stay for lunch. Example morning session (9.00am – 12.00noon) plus 12.00noon – 1.00pm.

Opening times:

Jimmy D's Out of School Club is registered for children attending Deeping St James Community Primary School aged between 4 years, up to and including the summer holiday after they have completed Year 6, during term time.

Our Out of School Club was the first of its kind to open in Deeping St James in January 1995.  A group of school Governors saw an increasing need for before and after school child care allowing parents to return to work knowing that their children are being looked after by trained, professional staff.

Within Jimmy D’s Out of School Club we pride ourselves in offering a varied selection of games, sports, music and activities including multi-cultural activities. All children who attend the school are welcome during term time and during the school holidays children from other primary schools are also welcomed.

For both Jimmy D's Playgroup and Out of School Club we have various ways you can pay for your childcare, cheque, direct debit or childcare vouchers. If we are not already set for your voucher provider we can do this very easily.  

Both of our settings are managed by a committee comprising of parents, school governors and staff. We always welcome new parents who wish to join our committee. Everyone has their own unique talents and skills to bring with them.

Our Annual General meeting is held every April.
